Subject: Please Vote NO to HB96 the Utah School Readiness PreSchool Bill
Date: 2014-02-11T06:50:16Z

Dear Representative,


Please vote NO for this bill, reasons I oppose this bill can be found at Obama’s Whitehouse Website http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/education/early-childhood

I’m also opposed to:

Data gathering of our preschoolers,

Using our preschool children as “investment” opportunities,

Obama’s plans for Universal Preschool



I totally understand why a Democrat would support this bill, not clear on how a Republican could support this bill. Please use our education dollars wisely and don’t throw it into a program that has already been proven to fail (ie Head Start). Why not provide online reading programs for parents with 1st and 2nd graders? It would cost less money and be more effective, instead of throwing money into a model that has been proven  to fail.   


Please vote nay on HB96.


Thanks Kris Kimball
